A Mississippi man is scheduled to be arraigned in the fatal shooting deaths of eight people, including a deputy sheriff in May 2017.

According to the Clarion-Ledger, Willie Cory Godbolt is scheduled to go before a judge Monday in Brookhaven after a grand jury indicted him last Thursday.

Goldbolt faces four counts of capital murder, which could carry the death penalty; four counts of murder, one of attempted murder, two of kidnapping and one of armed robbery.

He has remained in custody without bail since his May 28 shooting rampage in Lincoln County.

Deputy William Durr responded to a disturbance call at the home of Godbolt’s in-laws. Durr, Godbolt’s mother-in-law Barbara Mitchell, and two others were killed there.

Two people were killed at a second home while another two victims were killed at a third home.
